Walmart is an import company for China.

Just say no.

Mind you, every time I go to the USA I love to shop at Walmart.

But then I am a self confessed drunk.

We reap what we sow.

Life is fair really.

The title of your thread is misleading...am I missing something?

You mention Walmart in the title, and Walgreens in the post.

And you mention Medicare in the title, and Medicaid in the post.

The last part of your statement is so true.

It also won't be long I would bet before other states and stores join in to Walgreens in Washington's nonsense. The health care overhaul THEY are attempting will mean less profit, some VERY EXCESS for many along with long waits for just about anything in the emergency room, doctors visits and last but not least......
The Funeral Parlors........"Death by Healthcare Reform" :eek:

Yes I typo'd the name Walgreens for 'the other', sorry for the momentary attack of the 'stupids'.
Think I'll go back to bed and get up later. :)

Obama's lie lasted just a little over a couple of hours after he said this on his Fox News Interview. "Seniors on Medicaid will see no reduction in benefits. Now, one of the largest chain drug stores will refuse to fill prescriptions will be just the opposite , a reduction in benefits to those seniors depending on it. Can you people see that this man doesn't care about the populace?



Local News | Walgreens: no new Medicaid patients as of April 16 | Seattle Times Newspaper

Effective April 16, Walgreens drugstores across the state won't take any new Medicaid patients, saying that filling their prescriptions is a money-losing proposition — the latest development in an ongoing dispute over Medicaid reimbursement.

The company, which operates 121 stores in the state, will continue filling Medicaid prescriptions for current patients.

In a news release, Walgreens said its decision to not take new Medicaid patients stemmed from a "continued reduction in reimbursement" under the state's Medicaid program, which reimburses it at less than the break-even point for 95 percent of brand-name medications dispensed to Medicaid patents.

Yeah, it was misleading in fact, I looked it up as soon as I read the title because I hadn't heard anything about Walgreen's dumping medicare.

0bama will just nationalize Walgreens. What are those people who run Walgreens thinking anyways? Concerned about keeping their stores open, paying their employees and providing health care coverage too. Anyone who thinks doctors won't do the same better pay attention to this.

Sounds more like the drug companies are screwing people, but don't let your blinders get in your way.
Washington was reimbursing pharmacies 86 percent of the average wholesale price until July, when it began paying just 84 percent. DSHS estimated that could save the state about $10 million.

A company that calculates the average wholesale price was accused in a Massachusetts lawsuit of fraudulently inflating its figures. In a September settlement, the company did not acknowledge wrongdoing but agreed to reduce its figures by about 4 percent.

Walgreens said many private insurance providers have adjusted their reimbursement rates to lessen the effect of the settlement, but Washington's Medicaid program has not.
